Brexit & Children’s Rights in Wales: A Briefing Paper

At the Cross-Party Group on Children and Young People on 18 October 2017, Children in Wales and the Wales Observatory on Human Rights of Children and Young People at Swansea University launched a briefing paper on Brexit and Children’s Rights in Wales.

With the UK leaving the European Union, the paper sets out concerns that have arisen for children in Wales, and opportunities to protect children’s rights through law and policy in Wales.

The briefing concentrates on four main areas; the erosion of guarantees of fundamental rights, the undermining of social cohesion, the loss of EU funding to support disadvantaged communities, and the lack of meaningful opportunities for children to have participated in the Brexit process.

The briefing provides concrete recommendations on strengthening or safeguarding children’s rights as the Brexit process continues.

If you would like to read the brief in full, you can download it here.
